Local Residents Comments
"As a long term resident of Holybourne the rural countryside is a matter of great importance to me. I support protecting the rolling fields, beautiful landscape and ancient woodland of the Northern Wey Valley, which is on the edge of the South Downs National Park. I believe there are far better sites in East Hants to build 800+ houses than at Northbrook."
Alan Titchmarsh, Gardener, Broadcaster and Writer.
"As a local resident I am in principle supportive of housing development, especially affordable homes for the younger generation, but this is the wrong development in the wrong place. As proposed it is not in any way sustainable and I do not believe it is either suitable or deliverable. There are far better sites in East Hants to build 800+ houses than at Northbrook."
